Group work allows students to role play as both practitioner and client, while they work their way from head to toe, learning common injuries, how to minimize risks, and how to manage these injuries with wrapping and taping techniques. Students get exposed to both athletic (k-tape) and rigid taping techniques, when to use each (acute vs chronic injuries vs performance), benefits, and optimal body locations for each type. This is a fully hands-on workshop - participants will learn by doing! Anatomical and technical terms are reinforced for greater learning outcomes. Great as a currciulum-linked activity, topic enhancement, practical applications and can be used to meet Ontario SHSM requirments. Training can be adapted to suit high school and college/university courses, as well as sport teams. Educators/Organizers can request sport specific (up to 2 sports) per workshop, or general sessions for inclusion into their programs. Training provided by qualified practitioners from the field of chiropractics, athletic therapy, and/or physiotherapy.

Cost: $50.00/pp

WHY WRAP & TAPE

Wrapping and taping techniques are used routinely to accomplish a variety of objectives including:

  • Providing compression to minimize swelling in the initial management of injury.

  • Reducing the chances of injury by applying tape prophylactically (for prevention) before an injury occurs.

  • Providing additional stability to a structure to encourage healing, better performance and posture.

SOME BENEFITS

  1. Decreased Pain: Gentle application of pressure helps disrupt and dissipate pain.

  2. Decreased Inflammation: Pressure encourages circulation of oxygenated blood and removal of waste products, thereby reducing inflammation and promoting healing. 

  3. Improved Posture and Muscle Support: Taping can support better posture by promoting proper muscle alignment. 

  4. Improved Athletic Performance: By supporting unstable joints and delivering slight pressure to “sleeping” muscles, taping can prompt higher performance. 

  5. Supported endogenous analgesic system: The tape enables the body’s own healing mechanisms to work in the recovery process. (“Endogenous” means “internal,” and “analgesic” means “relieving pain.”)
